Euphoria‘s season 2 finale might have left more than few major questions unanswered, but we have learned one thing since: Fez had every intention of acknowledging the growing feelings between him and Lexi.
In a short and sweet interview with Variety, actor Angus Cloud unpacked the disturbing finale, which saw his character, Fez, lose his little brother, Ashtray, during a police raid on their home. The death is made all the more heartbreaking due to its circumstances: Fez had been moments away from walking out the door, roses in hand, to watch a play by Lexi (Maude Apatow), with whom he’d slowly built up an affectionate camaraderie over the course of the season’s eight episodes. Alongside the roses was a letter from Fez, simply addressed to “Lexi,” which viewers never had the pleasure of reading once the police had finished trampling and bloodying the pages.
But Cloud has a few ideas of what the letter might have contained, and he confirms Fez had romance on the brain. “I think [Fez and Lexi] both know there’s a vibe going on,” he told Variety. “Definitely taking it to the next level with them flowers and whatnot. So I think the letter was just being like, ‘Yo, good job for fucking doing you.’”
In a separate interview with Entertainment Weekly, Apatow shared that the Fez and Lexi relationship (dubbed “Fexi” by fans) came about after hours of conversation with director Sam Levinson. “I can’t remember specifically how that went down,” she said. “Once we started talking about it, it totally made sense. And Angus and I, in real life, have a funny friendship. It all just happened. It all felt right as soon as we started talking about it.”
Within moments of the pair’s first psuedo-romantic scene—a shared couch conversation during a New Year’s Eve party—fans went wild for the ‘ship. So when Sunday’s finale aired, the trampled letter seemed a harbinger of doom for the fledgling relationship. But Cloud harbors hopes for season 3. When asked by Vulture if Fexi fans should remain hopeful for the future of the couple, he answered as Fez would, simple but heartwarmingly earnest: “I would say, ‘Yeah. Yeah.’”
